Gaming Modes

There are basically four modes in War Thunder. These are as follows:

Arcade Battles

One of the most played gaming modes of War Thunder is Arcade Battle where two teams from different countries like German, American, British, Japenese and Russian have flights of planes. These are the 5 playable countries in this game. In this battle one can take 2 planes of same country but should be on different teams against each other. However you might not feel  it the real gaming mode of War Thunder.

Historical Battles

Historical Battles is more realistic gaming mode as compared to Arcade battles. The mechanics of flight and its damage is more realistic that means a plane can be shot down easily or if it maneuvered in a ruthless way then it will spin or fall down to stall.

 Full real Battles

Full real battle is considered as simulated gaming mode of War Thunder; however, it is not completely simulated. It is quite comparable to Historical Battle except it is little more realistic. The view range is restricted to first person view which is present in plane’s cockpit and you will feel realistic point in Flight Mechanics and Damage.

Custom Battles

Custom Battles is a gaming mode that is like a training mode for the game players. One can invite other players to join the game and play against bots. However this game play mode of War Thunder lessens the lags in some situations as compared with multiplayer servers. This mode is for enjoyment and one cannot gain experience even if he goes towards upper levels.
